Silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament
A silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for our bishops, priests. It also gives each of us the opportunity to have some time alone with Jesus and He with us. Continues this Wednesday from 8pm to 9pm, at Llay.
Extraordinary Year of Mercy
Just a few Weeks Remaining of this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy – and the opportunity to obtain the Jubilee Indulgence (i.e. The complete remission of all temporal punishment due to sin) for ourselves or to offer it for the deceased in Purgatory. The Holy Father writes “I wish that the Jubilee Indulgence may reach each one as a genuine experience of God’s mercy, which comes to meet each person in the Face of the Father who welcomes and forgives, forgetting completely the sin committed”. Whilst each Jubilee Year features a very special plenary indulgence, this time around, Pope Francis is seeking to make the indulgence as widely available as possible. In the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, a Holy Door has been opened in every cathedral around the world, as well as in particular shrines. We are blessed to live so close to our Cathedral in Wrexham
This is a wonderful opportunity for each of us, let us not allow it to pass us by unnoticed.
Our Deanery “Year of Mercy” Evening
Ruabon, Wednesday 12 October 7pm
Fr. Peter Prusakiewicz CSMA, will be leading our evening. The programme for the evening is on the board at the back of the church and was publicised in the leaflets handed out last week. As the venue is in Ruabon, we will have a coach to take us there. This means that everyone will be able to go if they wish and it will avoid searching for car parking facilities. Please put your name on the list at the rear of the Church if you wish to go. Thank you. Further information can be obtained from Geraldine on 01978 357367 or at the Parish Office, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Fr. Peter is also the editor in chief of “The Angels”. Copies available at the back £2.
Walsingham Appeal -
On the 24th September we shall be celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Walsingham, and on this weekend the Bishops have asked all parishes to have a second collection to help in the developments of England’s National Shrine to Our Lady. We are looking to upgrade existing buildings and build new facilities, to help us serve the increasing numbers of pilgrims, who continue to walk in the Walsingham Way, since the shrine was established in 1061. Our aims are to update our facilities, and to make provision for sick and disabled pilgrims and to have facilities for young people to come on pilgrimage. Full details are given on our website: www.walsingham.org.uk
Thank you for your generosity. Mgr. John Armitage Rector.
